Grimanesa Amorósis an interdisciplinary light artist creating site-specific monumental sculptures. Her work’s unique relationship to technology engages viewers in dialogue with cultural legacies, architecture, and the surrounding community.
As a medium, light art has a unique ability to cross cultural boundaries and captivate diverse audiences; everyone connects to light. The monumental size of the art and length of the custom-made light sequences create moments of intense contemplation as viewers circumambulate the work to view it in its entirety.
A trip to see the northern lights initially inspired Amorós to incorporate light into her practice. Her site-specific monumental light sculptures have since been showcased from Tel Aviv to Times Square.
